Katie Hill Ordered to Pay $220K in Legal Fees Over Failed ‘Revenge Porn’ Lawsuit

'The facts of which these photos speak are about plaintiff's character, judgment and qualifications for her congressional position...'

Katie Hill, the disgraced former California Congresswoman who resigned from her House seat after her inappropriate affairs with staffers came to light, was ordered to pay $220,000 in legal fees to the Daily Mail and to two journalists she sued, according to Fox News.

Hill filed the lawsuit last year after several media publications published leaked nude photos that proved she was having an improper “throuple” relationship with her ex-husband and one of her female staffers.

“The facts of which these photos speak are about plaintiff’s character, judgment and qualifications for her congressional position,” Orozco said at the time. “Of course, these are matters of public concern.”

Now, Orozco has ordered Hill to pay the attorneys for radio producer Joseph Messina, for RedState editor Jennifer Van Laar, and to the attorneys representing the Daily Mail.

Hill reacted to the order by blasting the justice system and using it as an opportunity to fundraise.

She lashed out at Orozco once before after his initial ruling, implying a jury would have sided with her.
